NFT Sells and Purchases
August was a fruitful month where we’ve added some of the most sought-out pieces in the market! Our curation council acquired luxury pieces as well from Prada, as well as continued with our Photography NFT interests. We would like to share some of this months’ pieces with you!
- DEVELOPER TRAY, Marlene #7 by Peter Nitsch (Check it out here)
Developer Tray is composed of a series of portrait photographs of Marlene, a young teenager photographed the way she wanted to see herself. These video portraits, swaying gently through water, look almost as though they are dancing and emerging from the darkness.
2. Archetype #103 by Kjetil Golid (Check it out here)
Jenny DAO is constantly on the lookout for Bluechips in the NFT space! We were still missing a gem from the Artblocks collection, and we are super happy with our new purchase of Archetype!
3. Ieva #223 by shvembldr (Check it out here)
Leva is an algorithm that creates a shape in a specific sequence from a random point on the grid and smooths out its corners. Overlapping such shapes creates endless possibilities of combinations that will always remain balanced and aesthetically pleasing. Sometimes you buy art because you think the work is fantastic and sometimes you want to support the artist and very occasionally that really comes together. That’s really the case now!
4. PRADA Timecapsule: June 2022 — #CassxPrada (Check it out here)
The Prada Timecapsule NFT is gifted alongside the physical Timecapsule piece.
The NFT includes the drop serial number and the numbering of each physical item in order to have an exact correspondence.
5. Overpass by Grant Riven Yun (Check it out here)
Jenny DAO has become the proud owner of this NFT! We continue to add to our collection with top-notch digital art. This piece is part of the “Midwest” collection. A romanticism of life in the Midwest of the US.
6. PUMA Nitropass #1231 (Check it out here)
The ‘Nitropass’ is the access pass of the Nitro project, it will allow access to mint NFTs of never seen before designs and access to an exclusive group that receives in-real-life physical products.
JENNY METAVERSE DAO’s Fashion Week
As the digital fashion industry is rapidly growing, Jenny DAO has gladly hopped on the bandwagon. In early August, Jenny Metaverse DAO held its first Fashion Week! Digital fashion is an intricate subject that touches on not just aesthetic aspects but even emotional. This article explores in-depth the implications of “imaginary clothing” in the metaverse and how it can be utilised to various extents, even politically!
